Terraforma Festival is the experimental and sustainable music festival that will take place July 1,2,3 in the woodlands of the 18th century Villa Arconati outside of Milan, Italy. The Festival involves artists who experiment new ways to reduce the distance between art and life. Music and its listening take man back to his natural frequencies where sense of rhythm is once again bound with the environment.
This year the sustainability of the festival will focus on a large scale project restoring an original labyrinth which originally existed on the grounds of the villa back in the 18th century.
Among the others, Charlemagne Palestine, the minimalist composer from New York, Biosphere, the Norwegian ambient sound explorer, Adrian Sherwood, the British electronic post-punk dub producer, Donato Dozzy, Lee Gamble, Healing Force Project, with his notes of free jazz, as well as eclectic Italian talents such as Francesco Cavaliere, and Paquita Gordon.
They will be accompanied by Rabih Beaini plays Vincent Moon, the filmmaker, photographer, and sound artist from Paris who will take care of the visual part, the masters Atom TM & Tobias, and also Sensate Focus (Mark Fell), the outstanding dj and producer from London Beatrice Dillon, the Italians Primitive Art, and Claudio Fabrianesi.
Terraforming is the theoretical process in which life on a planet becomes possible through the creation of an atmosphere. Terraforma is the manifest of our belief that new dimensions can now be terraformed. A three days festival where music is the catalyst: a timeless centre of gravity for energies, with a breaking point from which sounds and images create a sense of suspension capable of pointing us towards new perceptions.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=1019434022 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small track=2345092722]
Terraforma innovates the concept of musical experience by emphasizing the relationship between event and impact, incubating moods and forms of sensibility durable in time. We want to breed a new concept of listening, to encompass everything that music expresses and reveals; let it be inside, around or outside us, our society and the world.[bandcamp width=100% height=120 album=2484832141 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false artwork=small]
Terraforma is organized according to sustainable practices, integrating aspects from production to consumption of resources. An organic structure where the musical aspect is integrated with installations crafted by artists and artisans, and where gatherings and workshops will provide opportunities for meditation, actively involving the public. The interlace of musical, artistic and environmental dimensions will form an atmosphere capable of stimulating the listener’s sensibility to think about the present and the future in a new way, a cultural innovation sprouting from respect of the other and of the environment.
During the festival will also take place workshops and the talks that will happen in the middle of the villa and its gardens during the day. The camping and food court are located within the boundaries of the villa’s gardens.
